Pond Hockey Tourney Lake Winnipesaukee, NH
Meredith, NH 020411 The second annual New England Pond Hockey Classic took place at Lake Winnipesaukee, NH on February 4,5 2011 where 14 rinks where carved into the lake surface. (Cq). (Essdras M Suarez/ Globe Staff) BEHIND THE SCENES: This was a pretty good assignment. I got to drive away from the city and all of its bad traffic due to snow pile ups. I got to go the NH Lakes area which is beautiful anytime of the year. And most important of all, I got to charter a small plane to do aerial shots of the venue. Shooting from an airplane gives you a perspective on things you normally just wouldn't get from ground level or even a tall structure or building. Despite the temperature up in the air being in the minus 10-25 F range and catching the brunt of it while shooting through an open window. It was worth it. TECH STUFF: ISO 250, aperture 5.6- 22, speed above of 1/400th of a second for the aerial stuff. Gear: two camera bodies, a 24-70mm 2.8 and a 80-200mm 2.8 with a 1.4 TC.
